Downsizing to Sotogrande
Downsizing to Sotogrande

Luxury Partners Real Estate would be delighted to help you if you are thinking of downsizing to Sotogrande .

After the Pandemic many people chose to move out of cities and sought property in more rural areas of their home country, perhaps with larger gardens and outside space.

However what they didn’t bargain for after they decided to ” Upsize ” was the sense of isolation in rural areas and now with higher costs in electricity and gas, the costs of heating and lighting their much larger properties has rocketed.

Of course the opportunity to working remotely was also instrumental in the decision to relocate out of the towns and cities , but why work in a location which is dark and cold in the winter where even the country pub is mega expensive?

If you are able to work from home, why not move countries altogether and enjoy the warm weather and increased daylight hours of the winter months in Sotogrande

Thinking of retiring or taking early retirement

If  you have reached the life stage when when are thinking of retiring or taking early retirement why not change your lifestyle completely and indulge yourself by moving from an older larger property to something that is smaller and not only less expensive to run in terms of heating and lighting bills and easier to ” lock up and go”.

Especially if you decide to spend more of your retirement years travelling the world or even more locally throughout Andalucia with the cities of Malaga, Sevilla, Jerez, Cadiz and Cordoba in easy reach and full of history and splendor.

Become a S.K.I.E.R i.e. someone who has decided to spend the kids inheritance or a least some of the kids inheritance.

After all you have worked for years to maintain a large house, feed and cloth the kids and pay for their schooling and university..

Of course if you are a skier or snowboarder and want to also be near the mountains Marbella is approx two and a half hours away from the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the popular Sierra Nevada Ski resort.

Sotogrande is a little bit further but it only adds another 30 minutes to the journey.

Maybe the kids have left home and now at university, living in halls of residence and are not that interested in coming home when they can spend their holidays backpacking around Europe with their mates .

Perhaps they are now adults, living in other towns or even other countries . Similarly they may now be living with their partner, have their own family an so busy with their new lives and responsibilities ,that visits home tend to be more around the holiday season only.

Sotogrande is sport lovers haven with many golf courses, Sotogrande has a total of five golf course including the world famous Valderamma, hosted the Ryder cup and was the first golf course in Europe to host this esteemed golf tournament.


It is also regular fixture on the European Pro Golf circuit and many famous golf professionals come here for at least a week , sometimes longer to practice and play ,some of which even enjoy a stay at The So Sotogrande Hotel .



Golf features so much on the Costa del Sol . There is even an area in Nueva Andalusia, Marbella that is referred to as the ‘Golf Valley”.

The coastal locations of Sotogrande and Marbella mean they are next to superb beaches and the glorious warm Mediterranean Sea to swim in all year round and indulge you love for water sports and sailing. Many apartments in the Marinas here also have their own moorings for your yacht just outside.


Making friends here is very easy as there are many international expats from all over the world and all are keen to make new friends as they too are living away from their home countries.
Many expats make new friends after games of tennis, padel and golf when they meet up for coffees or drinks and discuss their new expat lives.


Socialising is less expensive here too.

There are so many superb restaurants with a variety of cuisine as well as the traditional Andalusian food and the wonderful tapas bars are incredibly popular places to meet up with friends for a light inexpensive array of tapas and drinks. Sometimes it is less expensive to eat out in tapas bars than to buy all the ingredients, cook and eat at home.
